Bottle boat sets sail

A boat made of 12,000 plastic bottles has set out on a three-month voyage from San Francisco to Sydney. The idea is to spread awareness of pollution in the world’s oceans.

The crew, which includes environmentalist and banking heir, David De Rothschild, have named their catamaran Plastiki. Their 11,000-nautical mile journey will take them past the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, a sea of waste about five times the size of the UK, or twice that of Texas.

Mr De Rothschild, the 31-year-old adventurer who has completed expeditions to the North and South Poles as well as various jungles, said it was time the issue of waste was addressed. According to the UN, four out of five plastic bottles end up in a landfill site.

The Plastiki takes recycling to a whole new level. The 12,000 empty water bottles are filled with carbon dioxide to make the boat durable and keep it afloat.

It is powered by solar, wind and sea turbines. Furthermore, an exercise bike will power the boat’s laptops. There is also a composting toilet, as well as gardens to grow food.

However, critics say the expedition only encourages the belief that it is acceptable to use plastic if people recycle it.

They think that instead, people should be encouraged to cut down on its use completely. They also point out that if the Plastiki broke up during the voyage, 12,000 more bottles would be dumped into the ocean.
